CENTBNNIflL f\LMf^Nf\G FOR 1901. 

THE MOON IS CALLED THE GOVERNING PLANET THIS YEAR. 



Concerning- the influence of the Moon, those 
old, it is believed, have said, If this planet 
seen in certain positions toward the sun, the 
irth and other planets, its power will be ob- 
rved in the weather, in the productiveness of 
le seasons and in the special constitutions of 
)th men.and animals. 

The Year in General. This year will be 
ore moist than cold and dry. 

Spring. Will be very wet and warm, with 
xasional frost. March will be cold through- 
it; April rainy; May, in the beginning, will 
J fine» with considerable rain followed by 
;vere cold: June will be very pleasant, with 
xasional rains. 

Summer. Summer will be occasicually warm, 
at frequently cold. 

Fall and Winter. The beginning of this 
;ason will be wet and moderately cold, after- 
ards quite cold and wet; with December will be 
low, followed by much rain. After the 20th 

will be pretty cold and cloudy, till towards 
le 12th of January ; afterward more moderate, 
lit soon cold again, until about the 25th when 
luch snow and rain will fall. March will be, in 
le beginning, rough and cold, then warm. Dur- 
ig this winter sheep and bees will be apt to die. 

Cultivation of Summer Grain. When this 
ear has a warm summer, the sowing of the 
immer crops should not be delayed, yet they 
lould not be thrown into tbe ground too early, 
nee the hot weather commences late. Barley 
nd oats at least will produce moderately; also 
:ntils, peas and millet^ which often produce 



MOVABLE FESTIVALS 



very well on good fields. Do not sow too late nor 
too early. There will be plenty of hay, but lit- 
tle second crop. 

Winter Grain. The fields of winter grain, 
and especially the rye, which if sown early in 
the fall and is rank and large, should be pastured 
down with the sheep, otherwise it will grow too 
rank and produce more straw than grain. If 
the wheat in May is large and rank, it will pro- 
duce little, for it grows too fast ; this, however, 
will not be the case on poor soil. 

Fall Seeding. This should be sown as early 
as possible ; it will then produce little enough, 
for during the cold weather it will grow but 
very little, and if winter should come early, 
sheep should hot be permitted to pasture on it, 
or they will crop it too short. All the seel 
should be sown deep into the earth, else by the 
plentiful floods of winter it will be washed out. 

Fruit. In some parts will be plenty ; in oth- 
ers scarce. Acorns will be scarce. 

Hops. These will produce moderately ; gen- 
erally suffer in the spring from mildew and hail. 

Wine. There will be little vintage ; grapes 
should be gathered early as there is no hope for 
good weather. Vines should be covered early. 

Wind AND Storm. In the winter there will 
be heavy winds and extraordinary rains; in the 
spring and summer there will not be ,a great 
deal of thunderstorm, though some, which will 
not do much injury. 

Sickness. In the fall there will be severe 
and fatal fevers, and all sorts of dangerous 
diseases.

SISTER SARAH MAJOR. 



BY J. H. WARSTLER. 

I HAD the pleasure of seeing and hearing 
Sister Major only once. A number of years 
ago she in company with her husband, 
Elder Thomas Major, paid a short visit to 
some of the churches of Northern Indiana. 
I had heard of her years before, perhaps be- 
fore she was married, but never saw her, 
and of course my anxiety to hear her preach 
was great; in fact, there was quite an in- 
terest manifested by many others to hear 
the "woman preacher." 

When she entered the churchhouse of 
Solomon's Creek congregation she took her 
seat down in front of the stand while Elders 
Shively and Major (her husband) went up 
on the stand and, after some little talk and 
arrangement among themselves, Brother 
Major invited her up, and she took her seat 
at his right side. In dress she was neat and 
plain, — a very plain bonnet, which she soon 
laid aside, and a little shawl around her 
neck and over her shoulders extending 
down the back and over the breast. Her 
face showed marks of age and care and 
labor. She was the picture of meekness and 
humility, completely subject to the will of 
her husband. 

After the opening exercises she was in- 
vited by Brother Major to preach. She 
arose, and slowly announced her text, an 
old, plain, simple one. I was disappointed. 
I expected something new, at least some- 
thing out of the ordinary course of texts, 
and here was one of the common ones. I 
was disappointed in a text, but was interest- 
ed in the preacher, and I gave attention. It 
did not take long to discover that out of the 
common came forth the sublime. I could 
see a wonderful unfolding of the text. I 
think I am safe in saying that I never heard 
a text so expounded, illustrated and so 
transformed into newness of life as was 
done in that discourse. The sermon was a 
masterpiece of workmanship. I came to the 
conclusion that the Scriptures of Divine 



Truth are a gold mine, and it is our work to 
bring the gold forth. Then I learned also 
that the old, old story may be always new. 

'Tis old, yet ever new; 
'Tis old, yet ever new; 
I know, I feel 'tis true, 
'Tis old, yet evernew. 

Sarah Major was one of two sisters who 
labored publicly in the ministry of the 
Brethren church. It was no wild fancy or 
imagination of hers that called her to as- 
sume the important responsibilities and 
labors of the sacred office of the ministry. 
She was, it seemed to me, specially and di- 
vinely set apart for the Lord's work. 

It was a question of much concern among 
the Brethren of her day whether she should 
be allowed to continue to preach. The 
elders finally concluded that she should be 
silenced, and a committee was appointed to 
go to her and so inform her. The committee 
went; but those brethren could not com- 
mand her to preach no more, and they re- 
turned home without fulfilling their mission, 
and that settled forever the question of her 
preaching the Gospel. One of the mem- 
bers of the committee was James Tracey, of 
Indiana, who, when he returned home and 
was asked about their work, said, " I could 
not give my voice to silence one who can 
outpreach me." 

Yes; that was an angelic visit of an Aquila 
and Priscilla to our old church years ago. 
They now peacefully sleep side by side 
until some day when they shall awake to a 
newness of life.

ON MOUNT QERIZin. 



It was on the evening of Nov. lo, 1898 
that our company rode into Nabulus from 
the west. Just a few hours before we had 
viewed the ruins of ancient Samaria, the 
capital of the district of Samaria in the time 
of the Savior. The city was finely located 
on an isolated and lofty hill, and was also 
most substantially built and ornamented, as

A BRETHREN COLONY is located on excellent 
land in Northwestern Michigan. Their names and 
full information concerning them furnished you by 
addressing Samuel Thorpe, Majestic Building, De- 
troit, Mich. 



"A MAN IS NO OLDER THAN HE FEELS," is an 

old saying, but there are many who both feel and 
look older than they really are, owing to some de- 
rangement of the system. Dr. Peter's Blood Vitallzer 
will soon set them right again.

can be seen by the extensive ruins that yet 
remain. In riding into Nabulus we passed 
along a very charming valley, where the 
soil was good and seemed to be well watered- 
The night was spent in camp on the west 
side of the city. 

Early the next morning, in company with 
Bro. W. E. Roop and a local guide, I set out 
on foot for the purpose of ascending Mt. 
Gerizim, which is over eight hundred feet 
high. The city of Nabulus, which answers 
to the Shechem of Bible times, is located on 




the south side of the valley, leaving Mt. 
Gerizim on the south and Mt. Ebal on the 
north. We found the walk up the moun- 
tam a long and laborious task. 

We finally reached the top, which is al- 
most level towards the east for the distance 
of one mile, then there is another gradual 
rise until the highest point is attained. At 
this point is where the ruins of the ancient 
Samaritan temple are found. These ruins 
are quite extensive, and show that the tem-

pie in its time must have been a very large 
and costly structure. Around it stood many 
other buildings, and the ruins indicate that 
a city of some size once occupied this lofty 
summit. 

One can stand at this point and have a 
very fine view of a large portion of Pales- 
tine, both east and west. The Mediterrane- 
an sea and the plain of Sharon can be seen 
quite distinctly. One can look to the north- 
east and see Jacob's well on the plain far 
below, and at the foot of the mountain. A 
fine view of the ex- 
tensive and beautiful 
plain to the east 
may also be had. 

The top of this 
mountain is noted as 
being the only place 
in the world where 
the Jewish passover 
is celebrated 'accord- 
ing to the direction 
given by Moses. It 
is celebrated by 
about fifty families 
of Samaritans who 
reside in Nabulus. 
One week before the 
appointed time these 
people come to the 
top of the mountain 
and go into camp, 
where they remain 
until the evening of 
the fourteenth day 
of the Jewish month 
Nisan, which cor- 
responds with the last of March and first of 
April. The lambs intended for the feast 
are brought with them when they ascend 
the mountain. In the evening, at the going 
down of the sun, the lambs are slain, the 
wool removed by means of hot water, and 
then the lambs are roasted in a pit previous- 
ly heated for the purpose. 

After the lambs are in the pit about two 
hours they are taken out, divided among the 
families and eaten with bitter herbs. What

is left, including the wool, is burned in a pit 
near by. The ceremony is witnessed by 
thousands each year, and about fifty Turkish 
soldiers are usually on hand to keep order* 
and see that the Samaritans are not molest- 
ed during their services. I visited the spot 
where this passover is celebrated, saw the 
marble block on which the priest stands and 
watches the setting sun, and also the pit in 
which the lambs are roasted, as well as the 
one in which the bones, the wool and what 
remains after the feast are burned. Some 
of the burned bones could still be seen.

THE BRETHREN CHURCH IN FRANK= 
UN COUNTY, VIRGINIA. 



BY C. D. HYLTON. 

Franklin County has a history along 
with the Brethren church of the First Dis- 
trict of Virginia. The doctrine as believed, 
taught and practiced by our beloved church 
is no strange doctrine here, for it has been 
preached for more than one century. In 
1797 it is said the Annual Meeting was held 
here on Blackwater, and a very heated dis- 
cussion took place on the non-combattant 
principles of the church. 

Unfortunately our church here kept no 
records and much that is now known of the 
church here in the past has been handed 
down from father to son. Among the ear- 
liest ministers that we have any account of 
were Jacob Miller and William Smith. The 
former preached in the German language, 
and I know nothing of his nativity; but tradi- 
tion suggests that he came from Germany 
to Pennsylvania, and thence to Virginia. 

Bro. Smith was born and raised in Eng- 
land. He told the following circumstance, 
which he witnessed in England, and which 
no doubt led to his identifying himself, with 
the Brethren church: A certain man was

the Messenger one year. 



appointed by the king to a position of honor, 
but before he could hold such an office he 
must become a member of the church. The 
gentleman demanded of the king to be bap- 
tized by Apostolic baptisin. The king, will- 
ing to grant the request, ordered that six 
yoke of oxen be hitched to the baptismal 
font and it to be drawn to a convenient 
place and filled with water. The minister 
then, in the presence of hundreds of wit- 
nesses, took the applicant into the font and 
baptized him by dipping him three times 
face forward in the water, using the formula 
given by Christ in Matt. 28: 19. After this 
Brother Smith came to America and located 
in Virginia. He learned of the Brethren 
here, united with them, was elected to the 
ministry and became the pioneer preacher 
for the English-speaking people in Franklin 
and Floyd counties. 

The little vine planted here by these faith- 
ful pioneers took root, began to grow and 
spread out until now there is scarcely a con- 
gregation west of the Ohio River but has at 
sometime received material from Franklin 
County, Va. 

Among the families prominent in the past 
history of the Franklin County church are 
the Bowmans, Naffs, Floras, Peters, Iken- 
berrys and Barnharts. All of these families 
are still represented here in the church. It 
is strange to note that the Miller and Smith 
families are unknown here in the history of 
the church after the decease of the two 
pioneers. 

Hundreds of men and women have wept 
and trembled under the powerful appeals of 
Elder John Bowman, known as " Franklin 
John." He was well known among the 
Brethren of Virginia, North Carolina, and 
Tennessee, where he traveled on horseback 
for hundreds of miles. He was bold and 
earnest, and but few men would dare to op- 
pose him. He handled the Sword of the 
Spirit with such skill that he had but few 
equals in his day. 

John Bowman, my great-grandfather and 
father of Elder John Bowman, also lived

and died in Franklin County. Although he 
died a premature death, at about the age of 
forty years, he had instilled some grand 
principles into his children. All were mem- 
bers of the Brethren church, two were elders, 
John and Chrisley (my grandfather), and 
Daniel was a deacon. 

Elder Abram Naff was another man of 
God who nobly advocated the doctrine of 
Christ. He was known and loved fifty 
years ago for his loving deeds and able 
ministry. 

Franklin County now has a membership 
of about seven hundred. It is divided into 
three congregations and has twenty-two 
ministers, including seven elders. Elder 
Daniel Peters, who in modern times has 
been one of the faithful leaders in enlarging 
the borders of the church, has now lost his 
eyesight. Two of the congregations have 
flourishing Sunday schools. 

They have mission points in Campbell, 
Pittsylvania and Henry counties, which are 
kept up largely by the ministers at their 
own expense. Their mode of conveyance 
is mainly on horseback. Some of these un- 
assuming men of God have traveled thou- 
sands of miles on horseback at their own 
expense, and murmured not. At all of these 
points a number have recently been bap- 
tized and the prospects are encouraging for 
the future.

HISTORY OF THE BACHELOR RUN 

CHURCH, CARROLL COUNTY, 

INDIANA. 



BY A. G. CROSSWHITE. 

Samuel Wise, a deacon, and Peter 
Iman (Oiman), a minister in the second de- 
gree, settled on Deer Creek near where 

Camden is now situated and Ulery, a 

deacon, on Wild Cat, near the present site 
of Pyrmont, in 1828, about four years afte r 
the first permanent white settler in Carroll 
County, Indiana. In the year 1829 Samuel 
Ulery, of the Wild Cat territory, was chosen 

Preach the Gospel to the poor by sending them 
the Messenger. 



deacon, and Peter Replogle, of Deer Creek 
swamps, minister. 

Peter Iman was ordained elder . The 

church was organized about the year 1830 
without any definite boundary lines. The 
territory was soon divided and North Fork 
church was organized. Elder John Myer 
(Mayer) moved on Bachelor Run, where the 
town of Flora now stands, in 1834. John 
Flora was elected deacon in 1836. Trouble 
started between Peter Iman and Peter 
Replogle, which resulted in establishing a 
crooked dividing line between the two min- 
isters, leaving Iman in this territory. 

Deer Creek was organized on Replogle's 
side. George Patton was elected minister 
and Isaac Eikenberry and John Trent dea- 
cons in 1841. Isaac Eikenberry and Philip 
Moss were elected ministers in 1842. Elder 
John Hart moved in in the year 1844. 

A few members living on the Wabash 
wanted a minister to preach for them, and 
Peter Iman held an election. But few 
members attended. David Fisher .was 
chosen minister. 

Hiel Hamilton moved into Howard coun- 
ty in 1846. Joseph Eikenberry and Jacob 

Flora were elected deacons . Trouble 

commenced between Peter Iman and Peter 
Replogle and others, which finally resulted 
in the expulsion of Peter Iman, George Pat- 
ton and a number of others. Soon after this 
a sect known as the " Oimanites " sprang up, 
but never grew strong numerically. Their 
leader objected to the Supper and also op- 
posed asking the candidate for baptism the 
questions in the water. Many of their num- 
ber came back and their church was soon 
almost unknown here. This eruption oc- 
curred in 1858. John Roadruck was elected 

minister . Howard church was organized 

out of this territory in 1852. The first 
church building was erected in 1854. Philip 
Moss moved out in 1855. John Hart died 
and Isaac Eikenberry was ordained elder in 
1856. Joseph Eikenberry and Jacob Flora 
were elected ministers the same year. The 
second church building was erected five 
miles from the first on the Little Bachelor 



We know of nothing better in its way than the 

Inglenook.

THE FINQAL CAVE. 



BY L. A. PLATE. 

Staffa, an islet on the west of Scotland, 
is noted most of all for the celebrated Fin- 
gal Cave, the entrance to which is formed 
by columnar ranges on each side, supporting 
a lofty arch. The entrance is 33 feet wide 
and 60 feet high, and the length of the cave 
is 212 feet. The floor of this marvelous 
chamber is the sea, which throws up flashing 
and many-colored lights against the pend- 
ant columns, whitened with calcareous sta- 
lagmites, which form the roof, and against 
the pillared walls of the cave. 

The sea reaches to the very extremity of 
the cave. It is fifteen feet deep at the 
mouth, and its waves, incessantly agitated, 
beat with great noise against the bottom and 
walls of the cavern, and everywhere break 
into foam. The light, also, penetrates 
through its whole length, exhibiting the 
most wonderful varieties of color. 

The right side of the entrance presents, 
on its exterior part, a vast amphitheatre, 
formed of different ranges of large, truncated 
prisms, the tops of which may be easily 
walked on. These prisms, consisting of a 
very durable and pure black basaltes, are 
from one to three feet in diameter. A trav- 
eler, who recently explored the cave, gives a 
vivid description of his impressions in view- 
ing this wonderful work of nature: 

If the children read the Inglenook they will be kept 
out of mischief — you too.

" No sooner had we arrived at this place, 
than we were struck with a scene of magnifi- 
cence which exceeded our expectation. 
The mind can hardly form an idea of any- 
thing more magnificent than such a space* 
supported on each side by ranges of col- 
umns, and roofed by the bottoms of those 
from which they have been broken, in order 
to form it. Between the angles of them a 
yellow, stagmatic matter has exuded. This 
varies the color and lends an incomparable 
air of elegance to the scene. To render the 
view still more en- 
chanting, the whole 
is lighted from with- 
out, so that the far- 
thest extremity is 
plainly seen from 
the outside, and the 
air within, being agi- 
tated by the flux and 
reflux of the tides, is 
perfectly dry and 
wholesome, entirely 
free from the vapors 
with which natural 
caverns in general 
abound. 

" The cave can 
only be entered by 
proceeding along the 
platform on the 
right side. But the 
way grows very nar- 
row and difficult as 
it advances, for this 

sort of interior gallery, raised about fifteen 
feet above the level of the sea, requires 
some skill in order to traverse it in safety. 
The passage way is at places quite narrow 
and, owing to the droppings from the roof, 
is also quite slippery. At one place, in par- 
ticular, I had room only to plant one foot, 
whilst I clung with my right hand to a large 
prism to support myself, and held the hand 
of one of the guides by the other, This diffi- 
cult operation took place at the darkest part 
of the cave, and one-half of the body was at

the time suspended over an abyss, where 
the sea dashed itself into a cloud of foam. 

" Not without considerable difficulty and 
danger did I penetrate to the farthest ex- 
tremity of the cave. More than once I 
found my attention distracted from the ob- 
servations, which I was happy to have an 
opportunity of making, to the thought of 
how I should get back again." 

Another writer says: " How splendid do 
the porticos of the ancients appear in our 
eyes, from the ostentatious^ magnificence of 




the descriptions we have received of them! 
With what admiration are we seized, on see- 
ing even the colonnades of our modern 
edifices! But when we behold the Cave of 
Fingal, formed by nature in the Isle of 
Staffa, it is no longer possible to make a 
comparison. We are forced to acknowledge 
that this piece of architecture, executed by 
nature, far surpasses that of the Louvre, 
that of St. Peter's at Rome, and even what 
remains of Palmyra and Pestum. It far ex- 
ceeds all that the genius, taste and luxury of 
the Greeks were ever capable of inventing." 

The Inglenook tells how things are made Read it 
and you'll know, too. .

LIFE AND WORK OF ELDER D. P. 
SHIVELY. 



BY FRANK FISHER. 

Elder D. P. Shively was indeed a man 
of high rank among men; not because of his 
physical form and great muscular strength, 
but because of his high moral worth, his 
strong convictions of right, his sterling fixed- 
ness of purpose. These qualities combined 
with his social qualities made him indeed a 
great man. 

Brother Shively was born in Montgomery 
County, Ohio, Nov. 24, 1841. He died of 
heart disease in his home July 22, 1900, at 
the age of 58 years, 7 months and 28 days. 

He spent his early boyhood in Montgom- 
ery County. At the age of eleven he came 
with his parents to Indiana, where they lo- 
cated in Miami County, Pipe Creek town- 
ship, where he lived and did his life's work. 

His early transition life was noted for the 
cheerful, buoyant spirit which he always 
manifested among his young associates, and 
which won for him many warm friends. 

His wedded life with Harriet Little, dating 
from Jan. 24, 1864, to his death in July, 1900, 
was one of true love and affection. Al- 
though he was called from his home often, 
he never got used to being away from his 
dear wife and family. He always went 
from home with a heavy heart at the thought 
of being absent from his loved ones and 
would return again as soon as his duties 
would allow. 

His business life was one worthy of emula- 
tion; active, industrious, persevering and 
economical; a model farmer. 

His life was a power in his neighborhood, 
for he practiced the Golden Rule: " Do 
unto others as you would have them do un- 
to you." In his dealings he was very strict 
and punctual to see that every obligation 
and point of contract was carried out. All 
business matters must have due and prompt 
attention, which made his word as good as 
his note. 

His religion was that of a real Christian. 



He united witn the church of the Brethren 
in his early manhood. Because of the evi- 
dences he gave the church of his ability and 
power he was called to the deacon's office 
October 14, 1871, which office he faithfully 
filled until September 18, 1873, when he was 
called to the ministry. Here he soon gave 
evidence of his ability as a master servant 
for the church. This ability called for an 
advancement in the ministry, and Novem- 
ber 4, 1889, he was given the full ministry, 
which position he filled with much profit not 
only to his home congregation, but to the 
surrounding congregations as well. He 
was a wise and careful counselor and was 
often called to serve on committee, work in 
various parts of the Brotherhood. 

He served as a member of the Old Folks 
and Orphans' Home advisory board for ten 
years. He also served the Mission Board 
for a number of years and was a prime 
factor in establishing and organizing new 
churches. He served the District as Moder- 
ator in many of her District assemblies, and- 
by the call of the District he served on the 
Standing Committee with credit to himself 
and with honor to the cause. 

Elder D. P. Shively was a man that was 
rarely excelled. Many men had a much 
better education than he, but few had the 
native ability "to use what they possessed as 
could he. He was a good conversationalist 
and could always find words to express his 
ideas intelligently. He was a close student 
of the Bible, and to his auditors he often 
gave its rich gems of truth with such pro- 
foundness and convincing argument, fol- 
lowed by the power and influence of the 
Spirit, that many could no longer quench 
the Spirit, but as on the day of Pentecost 
would say, "What must I do to be saved?" 
Elder Shively held a great many series of 
meetings with most gratifying results. He 
has been the means of stirring many to think 
on their ways, and, like David, turn their 
feet unto his testimonies, causing rejoicing 
in many hearts and homes; yea, many 
churches have eagerly received his fatherly 
advice and counsel with a comforting, sav-

ing power. When it was known that 
"Uncle Dan," as he was commonly called, 
was going to preach there was always a 
large audience awaiting him. 

At the time of his death he had the care 
of four churches. The high esteem in 
which he was held by the public brought 
him many marriages to solemnize, and his 
power to console and comfort the sorrowing 
gave him many funerals to conduct. 

Our prayer is that the Lord would send 
us more such men as Elder D. P. Shively. 



HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 



BY A. W. VANIMAN, 



:. D. 



Too Much Quiet. 

There is such a thing as injurious quiet- 
ness. When a person is taken sick nearly 
all of the family invariably tip-toe around 
the house and talk in whispers or a hushed 
tone of voice. This is especially noticeable 
in the sick room, and this display of silence 
is most annoying to the patient. The run- 
ning about and shouting of children through 
the house and loud talk by the older folk is 
not beneficial to the patient, but the house- 
hold life should run on as usual, and espe- 
cially when talking with the patient, a firm, 
clear, but gently modulated tone should be 
used. Most annoying of all is the loud 
whisper, which is worse than a loud tone of 
voice. In speaking to a person sick in bed 
sit where he or she can see you; don't get 
behind them and talk over their head. 
Avoid the common habit of following the 
doctor out of the room and holding a whis- 
pered conversation just outside the door of 
which the patient can only hear the hissing 
sounds of the whisper, which has about the 
same effect on his nerves as filing a saw. If 
there is a piano in the house and the family 
or any one of its members is in the habit of 
singing, and the patient does not actually 
object to it, let the music be continued as 
usual, only do not let it be noisy, for its dis- 
continuance will injuriously affect the pa- 
tient and its continuance will be favorable, 
since music is no mean therapeutic agent. 

The Inglenook isn't a paper for only little Willie; 
grownups enjoy it. 



Onions. 

"Onions," says Miss Dustin in the Lin- 
borough Sanitarium, " put you to sleep nat- 
urally. Bromides don't. There are few 
doctors who know enough to know that the 
Lord put the best kind of a sedative into the 
ground when he made onions. They build 
you up and they let you down, and are as 
calming as music by moonlight." Gen. 
Grant telegraphed the War Department in 
the summer of 1864: * I will not move my 
army without onions,' and the next day three 
train loads of onions were started to the 
front. Dysentery was raging and Grant was 
as thorough a commissariat as he was a 
General. He knew onions were a specific 
for dysentery and other ills of hot climates. 
Napoleon, Wellington, Grant — all three 
knew the value of onions." 

In Fevers 

give the patient plenty of fresh water and 
bathe often. 

For a Cold 

Place feet in hot water, drink all the hot 
lemonade you can, and then go to bed. 
Cover up good, and if you sweat, keep cov- 
ered, so as not to take fresh cold, and by 
morning your cold will likely be broken up. 

Runnings Ears of Children. 

Many persons have their hearing impaired 
for life because of neglect of this disease, 
parents thinking they will outgrow it. This 
trouble should be attended to promptly by a 
competent physician. 

A Mixed Diet 

is the ideal one. So-called hygienists are 
very likely to become extremists. Man's 
food should be both vegetable and animal 
in the proper proportion for supplying the 
demands for the body. Where the appetite 
is not perverted it will likely call for the 
proper proportion of each kind of food. 

A Great Mistake 

is made by many persons in retiring from an 
active life and spending the remainder of 
their days in doing nothing. The best way 
to live long and be happy is to be employed

SUBTRACT 1780 FROM 1901 and you have 121. 
That represents the number of years Dr. Peter's 
Blood Vitalizer has been in use. It is not likely that a 
remedy could stand before the people for so long a 
time and grow in favor year by year unless it pos- 
sessed merit of a high order.

at something in accordance with one's 
strength and inclination. Even the grand- 
parents should be given something to do by 
which mind and body will be exercised, if 
they desire it so; not for the work they can 
do, but for their health and comfort. 

Taking Quinine. 

Nothing has yet been found as a substi- 
tute for quinine in malarial troubles. Many 
persons do not secure good effects from qui- 
nine because of using it in an improper con- 
dition of the system. Quinine should not 
be taken when the bowels are constipated, 
the tongue coated and the skin dry and 
harsh. Under such conditions it causes 
much roaring in the ears and does not se- 
cure the effect desired. Before commenc- 
ing with the quinine, have the bowels well 
open, the tongue cleaning off, and then 
there will be a kindly action of the quinine, 
and chills and fever can usually be broken 
up at once. 

Ice in the Sick Koom. 

Ice is very essential in many cases of sick- 
ness. In case of high fever dropping small 
bits of ice into the mouth is better than 
drinking water, especially if water nauseates 
as it sometimes does. A good way to keep 
broken or shaved ice from melting is to put 
in a saucer and set in a soup plate and 
cover with another. Then place upon a 
large pillow and cover with another pillow 
so as to exclude the air. Thus ice can be 
kept a long time, and used as needed.

Northwestern Miciiigan set aside for colonization by 
the Brethren, furnished free. Address Samuel 
Thorpe, Majestic Building, Detroit, Mich. 



AS WE GROW OLDER we begin to notice irregu- 
larities in our bodily functions, which we have never 
noticed before. Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer regulates 
and strengthens the entire system. It is a comfort in 
old age.
